Default gears

+1 on the hot bodies gears. I use them in my jammin and they are hardened steel and last forever. Also, if you want to convert your X1 CRT to truggy gearing, the hot bodies lightning stadium diffs and pinions will bolt right into the jammin. You also have to change the center diff gear to the hot bodies 50t and the hot bodies entire center diff will fit. If you have any questions on what it takes to convert it over to the truggy gearing, pm me and I will make a list of part #s and send them to you.

The stock losi gears are hardened. I think they are aluminum but they are hardened and very strong/durable.

The XRAY 808 gears are the nicest ones ive seen. They are the same size as Kyosho and OFNA/Jammin gears.

ok cool.so if the kyosho ones drop straight in then what would i have to do to get the hotbodies ones to fit? i would've thaught that the outdrive shafts would be a different diameter, therefore making the gears different. i will check with my lhs just to make sure. thanks for all you guys help.

The Hotbodies gears probably are the same size, but im not 100%. There seems to be a standard size for gears and outdrives for 1/8 scale that only a handfull of manufactuers stray away from.

Kyosho's drop right in. Make sure to use the same shim spacing. Jammin spider gears= $16.00, Kyosho spider gears= $5.00.

Yes, I'm still using the same gears ( 2 years old ).

The secret : shimming on both planetary gears, so they are very close but they don't bind + tamiya ceramic grease.

I'm pretty sure the kyosho ones aren't hardened. If that is the case they will probably be the same as the jammin ones. Unless there is a huge quality difference in the metals used they would probably wear the same as jammin ones. I would get the hb ones.
HB gears

Kyosho gears

Here you can see that the K gears are not hardened

for the dollar I would get the hardened ones lol
